How do you spell love? T-I-M-E
That’s the lesson my wife has been trying to teach me for decades. Her love language is quality time, mine is not. She might as well be speaking a foreign language, “Whaaat, you want to hang out, and, just do nothing??” Rabbit meet turtle.
Now, I may be a guy but I’m not a complete idiot. If quality time is important to my wife then I need to learn how to make that a priority. It doesn’t just happen, I have to do it on purpose.
The same can be applied to our weekly habits especially exercise, prayer and reading your bible. The question I hear most is, “how do you find time to _________?” Well, you don’t. If these things are important you have to make time.
I do it by setting an appointment on my calendar. I actually schedule sessions for myself to exercise, pray and read. I treat these the same as any other calendar event like going to the dentist or a work meeting. I’m aware of it, I prepare for it and I get alerts to remind me of it. As a result, it gets done.
Move forward with purpose.
